Issues

Renewing sourcing channels is a key issue for any recruiter,especially for recruitment agencies. The challenge is to increase thequantity of applications without reducing the quality of theprospective employees identified.

Actions taken

To activate a new sourcing channel while maintaininga stream of quality candidates, Robert Half has implemented aninternal referral bonus. This encourages employees to recommendRobert Half within their personal network. The idea here is simple:any consultant who co-opts a candidate receives a bonus of €1,500gross once the candidate is recruited. All the company's employeesare involved, and each new recruit is quickly invited to co-opt in turn.To keep the momentum going, the firm awards a prize each year tothe company's “best co-opter.”

Confirmed results

Progressively, co-opting has played an importantrole among candidate sourcing, making it possible to improve thegeneral level of applications and accelerating the recruitment processsince the candidates already have reliable references.
